    Wow! I would switch - The best IMO is Safari 3 with Inquisitor and Stand

    Or Camino, which is a mac-only Mozilla project :)

    You really shouldn't have to wait that long for a browser...

    After a restart it takes about 3-4.

    After it has loaded once, it takes only 1 bounce.

    Mine takes about 2.

    I would love to use Safari, IMO it's a much better browser. I just can't live without my AdBlock Plus.

    On my 2.0GHz Macbook CD with 2GB of RAM it took 6 bounces. Camino is a lot better than Firefox though. I recommend it.

    After a reboot (which is rare) I find that Firefox will sometimes take anywhere from 5 ~ 10 bounces to start, which is an incredibly long time. I'm not sure what's going on when that happens, but after that initial launch, any subsequent launches take maybe 1 or 2 bounces; but most of the time it seems instantaneous.

    Watch the dock icon for Firefox and count how many times it bounces before it opens...

    When I've first started up, it takes about six to nine bounces. After that, it really doesn't bounce at all.

    It takes 1-2 bounces on my 1.83 CD MB, with 2 GB of RAM.

    4 on a new MBP, but with time for a few more after it stopped (before Firefox loaded).

    1 after it has already loaded.
